1. create a page in fedora-wiki for the spin incl information on
proposed packages and things to be added
Shall look forward to comments/queries and suggestions.
I believe you want it to make it an official spin only, but still
anything below 4.2GB will be missing too much. Also consider making an
unofficial spin ....
As far as my current plan with the spin goes, achieving 4.2G might be a
little difficult, since I dont intend to include domain specific tools.
However, that might change with more eyeballs looking at it and
suggesting more "generic" packages. I am also in touch with the SciTech
SIG members and in the process of reviving the mailing list.
The kickstart file is already tested, and the ISO builds alright.
However, haven't been able to test it properly since the rawhide repo
seems to be quite unstable atm.
Thanks for your comments/suggestions and will look forward to further ideas.
